I’m Paul Willson I am a brown belt in Ju Jutsu, a centuries old Japanese martial art.
What is the best martial art? It is obviously Ju Jutsu. Why? Because it is the martial art I train in.
Seriously though, the best martial art is the one you train in. One thing I hate on the internet is the blogs, websites, videos by “martial art experts” which claim to know or rank the best martial arts which is normally based on their own biased opinions or do the “my martial art is better than your martial art” thing. Both are rubbish and fail to understand why people do martial arts.
People do martial arts because they enjoy it. It is great exercise with liked minded people so it is fun.
If you rank martial arts it normally is, in the opinion of the poster, in how well it works in real life. Assuming most people don’t go out of their homes looking for a fight you are entering the realms of defence. Self defence is a grey area depending on what country you live in as laws vary from country to country, whether you are male or female or weapons are involved.
If you do the my martial art is better than your martial art thing, that is immature. Just stop!
The best martial art will always be the one you train in. Don’t let anyone dissuade you from that idea.
